Neocon Freakout Over Trump

80 comments:

  1. The Neo-Cons and The Israeli Firsters know that the Achiles heel on Hillary Clinton is her sold out Neocon positions on Iraq, Syria and Libya. That will come out to the average American over the next eight months as Trump becomes Paris.

  3. Trump recognizes that the moslem/arab/persian fanatics of the world are savages.

    This includes the Palestinians, the Moslem Brotherhood and the Iranian Islamic Nation.

      True enough, Ash.

      It's unclear whether they pick and choose the parts they want to hear, whether they are just that credulous, or, when it comes to the pols, whether they want to be first to jump on the train before it pulls away from the station.

    6. I think, Quirk, they hear something he says that they agree with and they glom on to that - for example I had been shaking my head at the bald face lies I saw Cruz saying on TV and when Trump publicly called him a straight out liar I was quite pleased to see that spoken plainly and forcefully to Cruz's face. I still think a Trump presidency would be horrible especially given the evolution of the imperial presidency spitting out executive order left right and center.

  4. Hadn't thought of it that way, exactly. And the average American will need at least 8 months to figure it out. I may need a year.

    Here's what I know - it's boom times for the Republican Party, turnout is way way up, all due to Trump. And being finally fed up.

    Turnout for the Dems is way way down, all due to Hillary.

    The Democrat Party is a sinking ship and Rufus is the only one here 'Definitely' swimming towards it with his pledge to vote for Hillary the Criminal.

    Interesting primaries, going to be an interesting general.

    If some Republicans run some third party red white and blue true Conservative, I'll never forgive them. Don't think it will happen though.

  5. Deuce will LOVE this if Hezbollah can pull it off... 800,000 dead Israelis....


    The southwester town of Zabadani, 30 km west of Damascus, is a ghost town, depopulated by five years of Syrian war ravages, except for one sign of life – or rather death. Since December, Hizballah has enclosed this once attractive tourist resort, strategically located on the Damascus-Beirut highway, into a heavily fortified ex territoria enclave whose high walls conceal the terrorist group’s new program for the development of weapons of mass destruction. This is disclosed for the first time by DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources.
    Most of the facilities for the research and development of chemical weapons and dirty bombs are sunk below the surface of the secret 2.5 sq. km site.
    Syrian and Iranian engineers and technicians are developing the chemical weapons for Hizballah’s arsenal, and foreign experts were hired from outside the Middle East to help build radioactive weapons. They are kept out of sight in on-site accommodation at Zabadani.
    A telltale sign that the Shiite terrorist organization was actively pursuing a radioactive bomb program – and which prompted our investigation - was dropped in a speech given by Hizballah leader Hassan Nasrallah on Feb. 16.
    He boasted that a pair of Hizballah rockets falling on the Israeli city of Haifa would cause a catastrophe equivalent to a “nuclear bomb” attack. He elaborated on this: “An Israeli expert had said that Haifa’s residents fear a deadly attack on the ammonia storage tanks which contain more than 15,000 tons of this gas. That would lead to the deaths of tens of thousands of Israelis and affect another 800,000,” he declared.
    “This would be exactly like a nuclear bomb and we can say that Lebanon today has a nuclear bomb, seeing as any rocket that might hit these tanks is capable of creating a nuclear bomb effect,” Nasrallah said.
    When someone like the Hizballah terrorist chief drops four references to a nuclear bomb in as many sentences, ending with the boast that “Lebanon today has nuclear bomb,” it must be presumed that he is crowing over some sort of nuclear device in hand.
    It may not be an actual atom bomb – which would call for multimillion dollar investment, expertise and time, “only” a “dirty bomb” (essentially a conventional bomb mixed with radioactive material). That too could cause massive damage to Haifa’s chemical industry, resulting in a high death toll, runaway panic and major disruption – the perfect weapon for terrorists.
    Israeli officials decline to discuss Hizballah’s new WMD program, but it certainly raises hard questions for Moscow and the commanding Russian military presence in Syria. It is hard to believe that the Shiite terrorists can develop game-changing poison chemicals and dirty bombs in the heart of Syria, without Russian intelligence noticing what was going on. Does that mean that Vladimir Putin is amenable to his air force providing it with cover?


    But wait, what if Israel hit it before they can produce the rockets?

    Oh Yeah Israel BAD..... hezbollah GOOD...

      The threat from the guy from Hezbollah was clear, explicit, and serious. Israel would be a fool to discount it. More importantly, it was laid out in this article in plain English.

      How much clearer can the statement be. Yet, the Debkafile expert offers us this.

  7. For the last several decades, the Republican party has been selling a simple economic message to its base: what is good for rich people is good for you too. And, until this election, the base was buying it. The astonishing rise of Donald Trump is an almost apocalyptic sign that they’re not buying it any more.

    The GOP establishment has seen all of its candidates not merely beaten, but utterly humiliated, by an aggressively ignorant demagogue, whose rhetoric makes him sound like a cheap knockoff of Benito Mussolini and George Wallace.

    Why? A look at the facts of American economic life suggests that the rubes have decided they’re tired of being played for marks, which explains why the GOP establishment’s siren song about the Land of Opportunity is no longer doing the trick.

    The basic myth the right wing of The Money Party has sold to Republican voters over the past 40 years (the left wing of the party is called the Democrats) goes like this: the economy boomed in the decades immediately after World War II, and standards of living rose rapidly. But since then, too much government regulation, too many taxes, and an overly generous welfare system that has made Those People even lazier than they were before have combined to kill the American dream.

    That is why ordinary Americans (aka working and middle-class white people) have bank accounts that don’t reflect the rewards they should have received for all their hard work. If not for government meddling we would have a thriving economy, just like the one we enjoyed back in the good old days.

    All this is a fantastic lie, as a glance at the actual economic history of America since 1945 illustrates. (In what follows, all figures have been converted to constant, inflation-adjusted dollars).

    America is a vastly wealthier country today than it was forty years ago. Furthermore, on a per-person basis, the country’s wealth has increased far more over the past four decades than it did in the thirty years immediately after World War II.

    Here are the numbers: between 1945 and 1974, per capita GDP in the U.S. grew from $17,490 to $27,837. That is an impressive improvement, but it pales in comparison to what has happened since: in 2014, per capita GDP was $55,185, i.e., almost exactly double what it was in 1974. In terms of economic output, the country is twice as rich per person now as it was then.

    THE GREAT BIG GOP VASOLINE JAR

    Where has all this money gone? The answer ought to shock anyone who cares about either economic opportunity or increasing inequality. The average household income of the bottom 50% of American households was $25,475 in 1974, and $26,520 in 2014. In other words, half the population has gotten essentially none of the extra $10 trillion dollars of national wealth that the American economy has generated over the past forty years.

    Keep in mind that this group includes fully half of the nation’s middle class, by every standard definition of that category.

    Meanwhile, over this same time, the average household income of the top five percent of American households (most of the members of this group would not, of course, consider themselves rich, let alone part of the actual plutocracy) has gone from $187,729 to $332,347. As for the really rich, the numbers are truly staggering: in constant, inflation-adjusted dollars, the household income of the top 0.01% (roughly, the nation’s 13,000 richest households) increased by about seven-fold, from less than $5 million to more than $30 million per year.

    Of course, some of Trump’s appeal is based on his willingness to exploit racism and xenophobia while speaking to the economic anxieties of white middle and working class voters. But establishment politicians are making a big mistake when they under-estimate the extent to which Trump’s message – crude and bombastic as it is — that Americans were winners but are now losers, resonates with the actual life experience of so many people.

    These people are angry about what has happened to them and their communities, and especially angry about the empty promises of a Republican party that is run for the almost exclusive benefit of the rich. The half of America that gets along on $40,000, or $25,000, or $10,000 per year doesn’t care about cutting capital gains taxes or getting rid of the estate tax (which already exempts the “first” $11 million of a married couple’s wealth), and it isn’t enthusiastic about slashing Social Security and Medicare either.

    1. To the contrary, all these things are the pet projects of the Republican donor class. For forty years the GOP has managed to manipulate culture war issues and racial and ethnic animosities to hide from its base two facts: the contemporary Republican party exists to protect the economic interests of that class, and those interests don’t actually align with the economic interests of middle- and working-class Americans, even if they happen to be white and culturally conservative.

      That it took a shameless foul-mouthed egomaniacal reality TV star to speak this truth in such a way that Republican voters would hear it is a sad comment on the state of our politics and culture.

      Well, I looked again and the verdict is the same for what you are trying to sell.

      No, the last data point on the chart is not above where it was when Bush left office at the end of '08.

      As for Oct. 1, 2009, you mean 8 months after Obama put out in his stimulus package with all those shovel ready jobs and two years before incomes stopped going down.

      You can pick any point on the chart and make up any argument you want especially when you are looking at it on a quarterly basis. Of course, it doesn't mean everyone is going to buy it.

      For instance, if you pick the end of Clinton's last 'fiscal year' as you are trying to do for Obama then the end point for Bush looks a lot better and your argument about incomes dropping under Bush looks even less viable.

      Or, draw a trend line through the Bush years to picture average incomes. Then, do the same for the Obama years. Then ask the guy on the street which he would rather have.

      Ultimately, you can preach about how one guy is great and the other isn't all you want but when it comes down to it the average guy on the street would say the following:

      - Pick the two high points on the chart, say April, 2002 and January, 2008.
      - Then, using those two points draw a line across the chart.
      - Now, when incomes cross that line and start heading north, let me know.

    6. "Ue o Muite Arukō" (上を向いて歩こう?, "I Look Up As I Walk") is a Japanese-language song that was performed by Japanese crooner Kyu Sakamoto, and written by lyricist Rokusuke Ei and composer Hachidai Nakamura. Ei wrote the lyrics while walking home from a Japanese student demonstration protesting continued US Army presence, expressing his frustration at the failed efforts.[1]

      In Anglophone countries, it is best known under the alternative title "Sukiyaki," a term with no relevance to the song's lyrics.

      The song reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts in the United States in 1963, and remains to date the only Japanese-language song ever to have done so. In addition, it was and still is one of the few non-Indo-European languages' songs to have reached the top of the US charts.

    For a little light reading here is the Donald on " Making Amrerica Great Again" - Wait - oh maybe not - really on how "outsourcing Creates Jobs in the Long Run"

    ( From Streif at Redstate) The Donald in his own words:

    "Back in the days of Trump’s blog on the website of his now-defunct Trump University website, however, he wrote a post in defense of outsourcing titled, “Outsourcing Creates Jobs in the Long Run.”

    “We hear terrible things about outsourcing jobs — how sending work outside of our companies is contributing to the demise of American businesses,” wrote Trump. “But in this instance I have to take the unpopular stance that it is not always a terrible thing.”
    “I understand that outsourcing means that employees lose jobs,” continued Trump. “Because work is often outsourced to other countries, it means Americans lose jobs. In other cases, nonunion employees get the work. Losing jobs is never a good thing, but we have to look at the bigger picture.”
    Trump turned to a study by Lawrence Klein, a former economic adviser to Jimmy Carter, who said outsourcing jobs increased wages and created jobs in the IT sector.
    “Last year, Nobel Prize-winning economist Dr. Lawrence R. Klein, the founder of Wharton Econometric Forecasting Associates, co-authored a study that showed how global outsourcing actually creates more jobs and increases wages, at least for IT workers,” wrote Trump. “The study found that outsourcing helped companies be more competitive and more productive. That means they make more money, which means they funnel more into the economy, thereby, creating more jobs
    “I know that doesn’t make it any easier for people whose jobs have been outsourced overseas, but if a company’s only means of survival is by farming jobs outside its walls, then sometimes it’s a necessary step,” he continued. “The other option might be to close its doors for good.”

    Thank you, Donald Trump. What great wisdom from the Donald at Trump University no less!
